And another one!

Just another quick sneak peek from Nigel’s A-May-Zing double CD-ROM “Craft into Christmas”. It’s a trifold card (I love making them) with a twist – it has a fourth panel on the front!

 I was an idea I had about a month ago. It looks like a normal card on the front and I used the christmas tree decoupage for CD-ROM 2 and added just a hint of glitter…

…but when you open it inside, it’s a trifold card!

I used three different backing papers for the 2nd CD-ROM to decorate the card. I love the vibrant christmas colours – but of course you get them in so many colours that you don’t need to like red and green (but I do!)

The additional images are from a toppers sheet and they co-ordinate brilliantly with everything else. Thank you Nigel for thinking of everything!

Craft into Christmas – Another sneak peek

Good morning everyone!

Not too long now until the launch! Today I bring you an easel card I made with Nigel’s A-May-Zing Craft into Christmas CD-ROM.

The twisted pyramage topper and the backing papers are from the 2nd CD-ROM. Nice and easy straight lines to cut and so easy to put together especially if you are using the Collal Glue Gel which gives you the time you need to align the layers – and afterwards you are 100% sure it will not come apart which is what I find sometimes with some foam pads.

I’ve also used a bit of red card and some gold mirri card. The “Peace” sentiment for the stopper came from the Christmas tree stamp, I just stamped it on red card with Versamark, sprinkled it with Sheena’s Gold fine embossing powder and then heated up with my heat gun.

I believe it is a lovely, festive card which would be ideal to give even to those of your friends who don’t celebrate Christmas but you want to wish them a happy festive season.

Craft into Christmas – Sneak Peek 1

I am terrible! Look at how long I haven’t posted here! :O I need to start posting some images of what I have been doing while I’ve been away from my blog… soon *winks*

But here I am now with something I know you’ve been waiting for! Sneak peeks of Nigel’s new christmas DOUBLE CD-ROM “Craft into Christmas”. Yes double!

For my first card I chose one of the card companions. They are so easy and quick to make but look soooo amazing that are ideal for christmas especially when you have those “Oh no! I forgot to get them a card!” moments (I know I have lots of them…)

 

A really feminine card for those ladies that really love their high heels (who doesn’t?!) I’ve mounted the card companion onto an A5 card as I wanted something different so if you don’t want to limit yourselves to the design, you have other options. I’ve decoupaged th boot and added some glitter to make it more sparkly. Just a little bit of ribbon and the matching backing paper printed from the CD-ROM and here it is, an A5 card. The little embellishment and the tag are from the same card companion sheet so you don’t need to print anything else!

I’ll be back tomorrow as I have lots more to show you! Make sure you watch the shows on Create & Craft on Tuesday 19th June as you won’t want to miss this!

My Christmas Cards

I know… I have been negligent. I haven’t posted anything on my blog for a while. But I had been very busy finishing my Christmas cards as I decided to make them ALL myself… last year I did cheat a bit and bought some but this year I said “No, I am making them ALL!”. I was a bit late to start though and that created lots of stress.

But now Christmas is over, we have opened all the presents and eaten all the food (and I mean it ALL the food) so I found some time to sit down and update my blog.

So here’s a taste of the cards I’ve been working on since the end of October. I have also included some other items I crafted as presents to friends and family. Enjoy!

And after the cards a photo of my kitty cat Nya wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

And for my first crafty post!

 

…here is the card I made for the Crafter’s Companion challege.

I was at first thinking of using some of the cd’s I already have since I have all of CC Beatrix Potter CD’s but when I saw the free Winter’s Tale pack I knew I had to use that! It also gave me the chance to use a new card type that I’ve been dying to use.

As for the snowflakes… they seem to be my obsession for this year’s christmas cards. I just put them everywhere! And I love to think that snowflakes are winter’s butterfiles ^^

So here’s my card!
